Applications are invited for Endeavour Executive fellowship available for Australian and international applicants.
Fellowship focuses on learning and building skills and knowledge through a host work environment in the applicant’s field or area of expertise rather than through formal enrollment in a study programme and are not suitable for academic research proposals. Fellowship provides financial support towards 1−4 months professional development opportunities. Professional development activities could include management training, peer-to-peer learning, mentoring or attending a conference or short course. Applicants must be nominated by their host organisation.
Eligibility: To be eligible to receive an Endeavour Scholarship or Fellowship, applicants must:
-be aged 18 years or over at the commencement of their programme
-be a citizen and/or permanent resident of a participating country (section 8)
-commence their proposed programme after 1 January 2016 and no later than 30 November 2016. Applicants who have already commenced or will commence their intended programme prior to 2016 are not eligible to apply
-provide all relevant supporting documentation (section 9)
-not currently hold or have completed, after 1 January 2014, an Australian Government sponsored scholarship and/or fellowship (directly administered to recipients by the Australian Government).

The department will email all successful and unsuccessful applicants regarding the outcome of their applications by the end of December 2015. Due to the high volume of applications received, the department does not provide individual feedback to unsuccessful applicants. There may be a number of reasons why an application does not pass through to the next stage.
How to Apply: Applications must be submitted using the Endeavour Online Application system. Applicants are encouraged to commence their applications early and submit their application as early as possible during the application period due to the large volume of users on the system in the lead up to the closing date. Submitting early ensures that you will not have any last minute technical problems due to the large number of applications being submitted. The Endeavour Online application system will not allow you to submit your application unless you have filled in all the required components. Once you have completed your application through Endeavour Online, a submit button will appear.
Scholarship Application Deadline: Applications for the 2016 close at 11.59 pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time) on 30 June 2015.
